Mindful InnerChange offers alternative therapy to help clients harness the power of the mind to start living their best life. Offering hypnotherapy and cognitive behavioral modification, with enhancement options of guided meditation, qigong and yoga, enables the Chandler-based practice to create customized programs that suit each client’s level of comfort.

What is hypnotherapy? Contrary to what is seen in movies and stage acts, it is the process of using hypnosis to interact with the subconscious mind in an open, reflective way to create positive change in a person’s life. To be effective, there must be a strong desire to change and willingness to submit to a deep state of relaxation where one always has control and can always hear what’s going on. Hypnosis is a natural altered state of consciousness that can be deeper than some states that are commonly experienced, such as falling asleep, meditating/praying, engaging fully in a movie, driving and “losing time,” or focusing intently on a work or school project. A hypnotherapy client will experience a deep sense of relaxation, drifting in and out of a sleep-like state, and will hear the therapist’s voice for guidance in visualization and positive change suggestions. Although the client may not recall specifics, he or she is always in control.

Two common reasons to consult a hypnotherapist are for smoking cessation and weight management. Other reasons to consider hypnotherapy and other alternative therapies are social anxiety, generalized anxiety, self-esteem challenges, fears/phobias, pain management, mood, habit breaking, grief, insomnia, motivation/concentration, and so much more. Whatever the reason, Mindful InnerChange has complete programs to simplify the process and lay out a plan with an end goal.

We all wish there were a “magic pill” we could take to make things better, but unfortunately there is not one, except in stories. However, there is something we can do to help ourselves: We can change our mind to change our life.
